Good Night Stories for Boys and Girls

I was a post-war baby-boomer raised in a family in which my mother played a more dominant role than in most other households at that time. This was not a reflection of anything innately lacking in my father, he was badly injured fighting during World War 2 and was left partly disabled as a result, and when we encountered issues that my father struggled to cope with, my mother naturally stepped up and handled things…

Cheddar Man – ‘Whiteness’, a Matter of Race, Not a Matter of Colour!

The mass media have over the past week or so, been celebrating the apparent ‘discovery’ that the ‘first modern Briton’, had blue eyes and “dark skin”, and not simply, ‘dark skin’, but “dark to black” skin colour, such that “if he was alive today he would be regarded as black’. This allegedly ‘ground-breaking’ revelation comes as a result of the DNA analysis of the skeleton of ‘Cheddar Man’, the largely complete skeleton of a man…

A Free Country, Stick and Stones and the Inevitable Salvation of the British People.

Recently, I was prompted to recall a conversation I had as a child with my parents during the ‘Cold War’ period in which my parents explained to me and my siblings the differences between the oppression that once existed in Nazi Germany and which still existed in the Soviet Union and the freedoms that we enjoyed here, in pre-war and early post-war Britain. Key among those differences were freedom of belief, freedom of expression and…

The Stairway to Heaven – Part 3 – The Political Soldier

I am aware that the term ‘Political Soldier’ and the concept of a political  ‘soldier’ has been used before, and there are Pdf documents available to be found on the Internet in which Derek Holland outlined in 1984 his vision for the formation of an elite group of political super-activists which he termed ‘Political Soldiers’ in order to emphasise their total commitment to our cause. I do not argue with Derek Holland in this respect, however an…

The Passion and Political Crucifixion of Mrs May

As Christmas draws near many among us who are Christians turn our thoughts to the birth of Christ, the story of the Nativity and beyond to Easter next year and the Passion, the story of the ordeal that Christ endured at the hands of the Romans, ending in his crucifixion on Mount Calvary, and it is this second story that has particular symbolism for we British at this time as we witness a passion play…

The Stairway to Heaven – Part 2 – Guerrilla Politics

There can be no more iconic image of romantic derring-do than that of swash-buckling British cavalry soldiers in bright red tunics and all their gold braided finery charging on horse-back, swords drawn, towards the Russian cannons that opposed them during the charge of the Light Brigade. Yet romantic and heroic though the charge of the Light Brigade was, the British cavalry were so depleted in numbers by the withering hail of enemy fire that by…
